. on the campaign trail we heard governor romney say he supported a green card to the every math and science graduate from our university. why should we educate some of the best minds on earth and say sorry, no room in the u.s. economy for you? it makes no sense. they go away and compete against us rather than innovating and creating jobs here. then i took a closer look at what the republicans are actually proposing. they haven't turned the corner at all. in fact, they haven't even stepped out of their houses. they certainly didn't learn anything from the last election. the stem visa bill on the house floor this week was actually voted down in september. it was introduced with a few changes and no consultation with democrats. i want to find a bipartisan solution on immigration. i'm committed to it. i know it won't be easy. they say a journey of 1,000 miles begins with just one step. the problem is my colleagues on the other side of the aisle want to take one step and have the democrats travel the other 999.9 miles. certainly this bill isn't even a step it's a shell game. it's the same proble
happens which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense from td ameritrade. >> obama: i've been keeping my own naughty and nice list for washington. so you should keep your eye on who gets some correct this year. there are going to be some members of congress who get 'em and on don't. >> jennifer: that was president obama at the connect toy factory factory. he was warning congress they might end up on the naughty list. and he asked republicans to extend the bush era tax cuts for those making less than $250,000, but not for those making more. echoing the holiday theme with this grinch like association. >> let's not kid ourselves. i'm not trying to make this more difficult. >> jennifer: stalemate. didn't we just start talking? oh wait, he's just posturing right? to sort out the latest tough talk from the posture is michelle bernard founder of the bernard center center for women public policy. welcome back inside "the war room," michelle. >> thank you. >> jennifer: so, how serious is the stalemate that speaker boehner announceed today? >> i was listening to that sound bite a secon
of time. smith has been asked to chair the science committee. i charge you and beg you to get him to watch your movie. i age that appointment would disturb you. >> in fact, we have distributed copies of this film to every member of the senate and the house. of course we have no idea if it's been watched by any of the members of congress but i really hope that they will. the thing that really killed me, and just overwhelms me sometimes is the knowledge that we here in america, in our current time and place, we have all the knowledge. we are the leaders internationally in observing these place from the ground, and observing how climate change is changing the world from ocean bowies to research slips to lied on the ground, it's just that they've been trying to ignore the tangible information and evidence that the best minds of our time are accumulateing and amassing. it grieves me to think that somebody in such an influential leadership position has been so eagerly and aggressively denying what has been a clear and obvious charge to our society and the rest of the world. >> jennifer: i cannot
that, but on the theological debate, that's how do you reconcile with science definitively establishes what your what faith teaches? with the age of the earth, there's no conflict. in the beginning, god created the heavens and earth, and the scientific advances allowed us, given us insight into when and how he did it, but i believe god did it. that's how i reconcile that. that's consistent with the teachings of my church. other people have a deeper con flipght. i think in america, we should have the freedom to teach our children whatever we believe, and that means teaching them science. they have to know science, but parents have the right to teach theology and reconcile the two things as they believe and see fit, and i think that's the point the president was making back in 2007 when he was asked the question. that's what i was saying. >> accepting that, how old is the earth? >> science says it's -- my faith teaches it's not inconsistent, but god great created the universe. god creates help and earth, and science gives us insight. the more science learned, the more i'm convinced that
in south florida as great a strain folks at entry point, there is science and progress of human trafficking. awareness part is important. they have to take the place when the internet for law enforcement because a lot of times they find themselves into prostitution and get treated as perpetrator rather than victims. if ecologists force them into a perpetrator but in fact we are the dems and they have to give him for certain judicial system to treat a women as victims and put them in a setting with a pull themselves away from drug addiction or whatever it's supposed appendices seem to keep them trapped. >> first i want to ask you a couple twitter questions that have come in what we've been talking here. one is who's the best meter in washington? >> robert griffing. [laughter] >> why did the majority of americans reject the republican party? >> i think it was an election. it was a very close election when he looked than others and differences between. there is their free enterprise may maintain we need to improve on the way they connect those policies of the everyday life of everyday people.
one after another individuals cross receiving their masters and doctorate degrees in science, in math, engineering. the amazing thing is one after another had names that were almost imupon to pronounce -- impossible to pronounce in some cases, and clearly the majority of these engineers and scientists were going -- came from other countries and were being told they must return to them. he made the statement in his op-ed that in fact at the end rather than just a diploma, they should be given a diploma and green card. mr. speaker, i agree with thomas friedman on this subject. for each person we welcome to america with one of these high degrees, we create jobs, net jobs. we create opportunity for expansion of the kinds of businesses that, in fact, americans are prepared to work in, but often we do not have enough engineers, scientists, or math professionals. this shortage, particularly at the masters and doctorate level, is well documented. this is not something in which republicans and democrats are on different sides. this is something which we agree to it. there is some controversy,

. and so much help, this stuff is not easy, it is not science. but ken tried it make it fair, and doubly shore that those who needed the money g the money. ken is joining me now on the phone. ken, here is what worries me with money that governor cuomo is asking for, and governor christie of new jersey is figure for, they will likely get it, but there is no guaranteethat folks who need it will get it. >> you have to make sure that money doled out goes to the right people in a tamely fashion -- timely fashion the way that programs work, as you know, from covering 9/11 and bp. fast, without restricttion and used to ground the way it is supposed to be used. if there are administrative prove lem, then they have to be more efffficient. it is that simple. neil: but it seems to be for others who tried to do, what you dwell, that well is a long lag. for those affected, without a house, a few weeks is a long lag, in the scheme of things it ma not be. but in this case, it seems that fema was a dollar late and a day short, then some. my only fear, is that giving such entities more power and money ma

, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> from america's news headquarters, i'm ainsley earhardt. new developments tonight in a case involving those two missing cousins from iowa. police say hunters have found two bodies and they think they are elizabeth collins and lyra morse. the cousins vanished on a bike ride last july. the bodies were discovered this afternoon, but police didn't elaborate on where, saying the area is still being investigated. citigroup, the nation's third largest bark, laying off thousands of employees, mostly people who work in local branches and foreign operations. the bank will slash 11,000 jobs, 11% of its workforce, looking to save more than $1 billion a year. the bank didn't fair well in the 2008 financial collapse and had to take two taxpayer-funded loans. i'm ainsley earhardt. now back to "on the record" with gret a. thank you for watching. >> you're the president of the united states. you've got the mighty pen. you bailed out the banks. bail out the american people that don't have homes for the holidays. the presid
,000 green cards that people with advanced degrease with science and engineering. doug mckelway live on the hill with the story this morning. this bill failed in september. why are republicans bringing it back now? >> reporter: bill, it failed back in september because it was brought up under suspension rules which requires 2/3 majority so it failed. it is coming back today under normal house rules which require simple majority and republicans are very confident after they that he have they have the votes of after the election results of november 6th they need to show strong advocacy of immigration. here is one of the strong supporters of the bill, raul labrador of idaho. melissa: at the same time we don't need to change our agenda. too many republicans say we need to abandon our agenda and become a different party. washington clearly doesn't need two liberal parties. >> reporter: it would do away with what is called the green card lottery, which gives 55,000 cards randomly selected by computer people from country with traditionally low immigration rates to the united states. that me
is with us. the science is clear. national security establishments all know that this is real. there is a rearguard action in this building but i polluters to try to prevent us in taking action on this. we have to face the fact that deniers are wrong. they are just dead wrong. whatever motivations may be, they are wrong and we have to deal with that and i think some of the courtesy we've given to one another collegially really have to yield to the fact that some of the things said in the senate and equitably in this committee chamber just plain wrong. sandy shows the price of not being attentive to these facts in a thank you for your leadership, madam chair. >> senator, i want to thank you for your remarks. i feel, as you do, that the clock is ticking and hurricane sandy has shown us all what the scientist sitting right in this room today i got the goupil all were sitting right there and told us exactly what would happen and it's all happening. you can close your eyes and cover your ears and put a pillow over your head, but anyone with a heart beat and he pulls can tell that t
equipment, in r&d, in science education and infrastructure and so forth. the question many people, sir, don't want to consider is where do we get those resources with those enormous debts? i asked our research department if they would make a reasonable prediction of how important interest costs would be if we did nothing, and their estimate without any explosion in interest rates was as follows: within 25 years or so, our interest costs would jump from about 1% of the gdp to 12% of the gdp or roughly four times the total investment made in r&d, science education and infrastructure. and if we ever permit that to happen, we will have assured that we're going to have what i call a slow growth crisis. and that's at least my way of formulating what happens if we don't do anything. but, mike, please, take over. this is your meeting, not mine. >> well, one of the things i don't claim to be here is an economics expert, although it's from a national security standpoint, and i've felt this way for years, that it's not just about the health of our economy, it's around the world, it's the health of eco
income and if you don't have income you can't pay income taxes. that's not rocket science. got to get folks back to work and more, mr. speaker. if you're a family of four and you're earning $30,000 a year, you can't afford to pay the bills of this country in the same way that someone making $200,000 a year can. that's ok. we understand that. that's why there are graduated rates in the income tax code. some people 10%. some people pay 15%. some people pay 25%. some people pay in the 30's. the more you have the more we think you're able to contribute, but here we are in what every american economist would agree is one of the most dire economic circumstances of our time and what i hear described as leadership from the president is don't change anything for the 80%. in fact, spend more on the 80% and go tap that last 1% to pay all the bills. the top 1% are already paying all the bills. . this chart i would say demonstrates a moral imperative that we have the and grapple with as american citizens, as members of the greatest self-ruling nation the history of the world, what we have already
visas now will go to foreign nationals with advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering and math, that's the s.t.e.m. acronym, a lot say it's a piece meal approach and comprehensive is a way to go. what do you think about that? >> that is the question. we started out with a comprehensive approach. that didn't work the first time. a piece meal approach is what is being led right now by republicans. mario diaz balart and congressman labrador in the house, and what this does, for example, is allows us to increase the number of scientists, mathematicians, phds, who come into the country to stay here and work in the u.s. who have studied here instead of kicking them out, have them come in and work for us. we don't have enough people helping us with innovation, and what's happening is some companies are building r & d centers in canada because they can't find the people here. >> i want to go to something that a member of congress said. representative louis gutierrez says if you support this bill said you're saying one group of immigrants is better than another and one type of

. caller: c-span could put on actual science. i think there is a lot of magical thinking on the part of democrats here. first of all, they are assuming if they raise the taxes on this one%, it will not affect the jobs and the companies that they work for. nor would it affect the customers they have. what are the percentages of the most important job creators around? how did you identify them? they had no clue. i think the other aspect of magical thinking is that in the noise and the signal, nate silver pointed out previously a 12% rise in gdp might ake for a 2% rise in employment. in 2005, we got 3.5 million jobs lost. it is a fantasy to believe that the president's spending is going to make employment rise more. recently, there has been an article by a harvard university law professor who says if you are going to do this thing, it is more important to make all the fiscal cuts them back as greece and spain know, when people do not trust your debt, weak issue too much debt. if everyone heads to the door like china and other is, our debt is really going to go up. host: should the raisi
